What would be the purpose of setting up an CG award? Some do it to promote the organizers or sponsors' needs: promoting their products to enhance their monetary gains. As such, it's inevitable that quite often--if not at all--the best gets put aside to make room for another that helps to meet theirs need. Sometimes the organizers have done it so blatantly that they have destroyed their year-long reputation and never recovered.

What is the goal of BlenderNews.org's Render of the Year Awards, then? Not for monetary gains. Blender is free anyway and the organizer(s) for this awards doesn't rely on any sponsorship even from the Blender Foundation.

Render of the Year Awards--along with its weekly Render of the Week Awards--seek to help commissioners to identify competent artists or studios to realize their visions. It's time consuming to review all the portfolios of thousands of artists and even verify their claim of competence. 

This year, public voting is back for the Render of the Year Awards! Put yourself in a commissioner's shoes: You are a film director and you are looking for a concept artists to visualize your ideas. Or you are an animation director looking for a character artist for a stylized or hyper-real animation feature. Or you are a manufacturer trying to promote your product. Or you are an architect trying to show the best of your ideas to your clients. Which artist or studio would you choose among the candidates? 

A commissioner's need may vary. And so are the categories for the Render of the Year 2020, which are:

1. Best Blender Render

2. Best Concept Art (Environment)

3. Best Concept Art (Props)

4. Best VFX

5. Best Character Art (Stylized)

6. Best Character Art (Realistic)

7. Best Character Art (Creature)

8. Best Industrial Render

9. Best Food Render

10. Best Architectural Render (Interior)

11. Best Architectural Render (Exterior)

With the above categories in mind, please make your selection (You can choose multiple works.)
